David Common 
Host | World Report 
Journalist | marketplace

David Common wakes up every morning at "Dark o'Clock" to host World Report, the morning national newscast with more than a million listeners. He also remains a Correspondent with CBC News, and has become quite good at moving, with postings to New York, Paris, Toronto, Fredericton, Winnipeg and Regina. 

Born in Winnipeg, David grew up in Toronto, went to York University in Toronto and Stockholm University in Sweden. He started with CBC as an intern at our London, England bureau in 1998. 

David knows travel - he's reported from more than 50 countries, from the beaches of the Seychelles Islands to eight separate trips to Afghanistan. He helped cover the 2003 invasion of Iraq, toured the Arctic on a Canadian icebreaker, covered the devastating earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Japan, elections in the US, and once interviewed Elmo from Sesame Street. 

Common has received several awards, nominated for a Gemini twice - winning once under the Best Reportage category. He's also one of the CBC's multi-skilled journalists, able to shoot and edit his own stories as needed. 

He currently lives in Toronto with his wife and two daughters
